Brighter Rhodes in SE1

Among the joys of London are its myriad gardens and green spaces; one of the newest, and perhaps the most colourful, is tucked away near London Bridge Station and Guy's Hospital. The colour doesn't just come from the plants filling this tiny pocket park: it's also painted onto the walls of the Greenwood Theatre which provides its backdrop. 

This space in Weston Street is the work of fashion designer Zandra Rhodes, who devised it with garden designer Joe Swift. It has not only enlivened a rather blank brick building, but also brought an attractive space to sit, and an increase in biodiversity.
